Really great introduction to a new author I hadn't read before. I'll be getting more into her work next!

Excellent series idea, discussing authors. Much needed. Happy with books I've read so far in the series.

Exploring Dark Short Fiction #2 for Kaaron Warren. This Primer is second in the series and a great study of another author of short stories, highlighting some of her best work and explaining the author’s importance. This is an indie book, and amazing quality. All the sections are illustrated, and besides the short story fiction, there is an interesting interview, essay written by the author, commentary on the works, and more. 5 stars.

A Primer to Kaaron Warren is the second book in the Exploring Dark Short Fiction series of books being published by Dark Moon Books (with last year’s primer on Steve Rasnic Tem being the first). The Kaaron Warren primer acts as a collection of six of her short stories – one of them being exclusive to this collection – along with associated commentaries, essays and bibliographies. If one is not sure where to start in exploring the literature of Warren, this primer certainly makes it easy.

Last year when the first Exploring Dark Short Fiction Primer book was released featuring a tribute to Steve R Tem I was excited about the potential of these. Before I get into the content let me tell about the series. These are beautiful books, they look amazing and the quality of the production is some of the best I have seen by a independent publisher. When you add the commentary by PH.D Michael Arnzen, everything from the lay-out, to the art is top notch. When you add it to the amazing fictio ...more

I absolutely LOVED this book, my introduction to the author. Each successive story in Exploring Dark Short Fiction #2: A Primer to Kaaron Warren hooked me deeper, beginning with Guarding the Mound, a story that reminded me quite a bit of one of the one-off stories I love so much from Neil Gaimen’s Sandman. After that I found the book hard to put down - even though I had a few weeks away thanks to my own writing - and when I was finally able to re-engage, I whipped through the remainder, increasi ...more

Shelves: horror, review-copy
I'm starting my Women in Horror Month reviews with a highly recommended read.

A Primer to Kaaron Warren contains six short stories by Kaaron Warren, an essay on "Why Karron Warren Matters" by Micheal Arnzen, an interview with Kaaron Warren, and essay by Kaaron Warren titled "Tips for Finalizing Your Short Story", and more.

This was my first experience reading Kaaron Warren's work. I have a couple of her novels (one fantasy and one horror) on my shelves that I am really anxious to read.

Her stories
